Gloucestershire to lose up to 200 hospital beds18th February 2010
Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has announced that it is to close up to 200 beds at two hospitals in order to save money.
From April 1, in the first phase of closures, 95 beds will go in four wards at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. The trust, which also runs Cheltenham General hospitals, said it has to save between £27m and £30m in the 2010/11 financial year, a saving representing a 6.5% on the previous year’s budget. Unison says it is dismayed at the announcement.
